Year in Review {Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec}

Here we are, the last yearly recap. Wow, just wow. Hard to believe tomorrow is the last day of 2015. What a year it was and what memories were made. I have to admit, I got a bit teary finishing this post because there were so many wonderful moments to reflect on and remember. #lastyearlyrecap #goodbye2015

Labor day was celebrated in Cincinnati with family. It was a wonderful time of baby cuddling, pool time, yummy food and of course playtime with legos and kids.


The month continued with a trip to Music City for kickball. It wasn't the best tournament but it was a fantastic time with some of my favorite people. #blessed #rich #ilovekickballandmyfamily

I shared my first makeup video

Katie Elizabeth and I hosted a fall linkup and it was so much fun reading everyone's fall favorites. 

I trekked down to my alma mater for a soccer alumni reunion and welcomed Babyspice home from London.

I also gave you a lil bit more of a peek into my personality and life.  

I became CPR certified and ate all the unhealthy things.

We made our yearly Vegas visit and again came away from the tournament short handed. However, we ate delicious food, hung out with some amazing people and enjoyed a fun weekend away from regular life.

Shared a review of a new boutique,  provided tips on the perfect pushup. and shared some of my Autumn favorites.

Made my first homemade soup. #whole30

We were weenies and did NOTHING for Halloween.

The first full weekend of November I headed down to Orlando for the kickball Championships and I also met up for a fabulous blate with some of my Florida favorites. It was a fabulous happy hour and the tournament actually went really well for once. We didn't win but everyone played their best and that's all you can ask for right?


Snapped up some sweet make up goodies and wore some of my fashion favorites.  

I used November to give thanks for many different things and it made me happy counting my blessings.

We traveled Cincinnati for Thanksgiving and spent an fabulous week with family celebrating the holiday.

I joined some fabulous ladies and hosted my first giveaway.

Katie, Sara and I also had a weekly Christmas Countdown linkup. I shared my favorite decor item, our apartment decorations, a gift guide and ended it with some of my favorite Christmas traditions.

There was Christmas tree buying, dinner with friends, mission work and of course yummy treats.


We continued our yearly tradition of lay wreaths in Arlington cemetery and this year Le Husband joined in the fun. 

I started recapping 2015. 

We celebrated Christmas in DC with my family. 

And there you have it folks, the end of the line. Thank you 2015 for being so fabulous. CHEERS to 2016!
